NEW DELHI: In view of the reports of restrictions on inter-state and intra-state movement of people and goods, the Centre on Saturday directed all states to follow the Unlock 3.0 guidelines and allow such movement without any separate permission or permit.

A letter by Union Home Secretary Ajay Bhalla to all Chief Secretaries draws their attention to "para 5 of Unlock 3.0 guidelines", which states that there will be no restrictions on inter-state and intra-state movement of persons and goods. Citing the para, the letter mentions that no separate permission, approval and e-permit will be required for such movement of persons and goods for cross-border land trade under treaties with neighbouring countries. The Home Secretary's letter notes that there are reports that local-level restrictions on movement were being imposed by various districts and states. The letter says such restrictions were creating problems in inter-state movement of goods and services and impacting supply chains resulting in disruption of economic activity and employment. (IANS)
